Over the years, I have known many families whose lives were tremendously blessed by Camp Kesem. Camp Kesem operates free summer camps for children who have been impacted by a parent's cancer. And registration for Summer 2022 camps is now OPEN!
Read a little about Camp Kesem from their website.
At camp, we focus on creating fun experiences that help these children escape - even if for a short time - the challenges of coping with a parent’s cancer diagnosis.
Campers find adventure and creativity, build trust in themselves, and create new friendships. Many children say that Camp Kesem is the best week of the year, and we agree!
About Camp Counselors and Staff
Providing a safe, fun, and empowering experience for your child is our top priority. That’s why we recruit college student leaders that care deeply about our mission to our Kesem chapters and invest significantly in leadership training and support to prepare them to be counselors at our camps across the country.
We also bring on nurses, mental health professionals, and other experienced staff to support our counselors and campers at camp.
If you have children ages 6 to 18, check out their website here to learn more about the camps and to register your kiddos.
We'd love to hear about your kids' experiences at Camp Kesem! We applaud their beautiful work to give children who have been impacted by a parent's cancer the ULTIMATE summer camp experience!
